Q1 - Halloween: Did trick-or-treater's come to your house this year? If so, approximately how many came by? Was this year's number higher or lower than you've had in previous years, and what did you give them? We had about 40 this year, which is fewer than last year, but not by a lot. Our bowl contained: Mounds, Kit Kats, Airheads, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, and Sugar Babies. So hopefully something for everybody.
Q2 - Allergies: Do you have allergies? If so, what are you allergic to? If you're not allergic to anything, is there anything you wish you were allergic to? This is such a funny question for me. As I've mentioned, I'm allergic to damn near everything. My most extreme allergies are to dust, cedar pollen, and grass, but I'm also allergic to most molds and pollens, several trees, dogs, cats, horses, cockroaches, walnuts, several antibiotics, Codeine, bees...
Q3 - Organic Food: The organic food market in the United States is projected to reach a value of $30.7 billion by the year 2007. According to one recent report, close to 40 percent of the U.S. population now uses organic products on a daily basis. Are you included in that 40 percent figure... do you intentionally buy organic foods or drinks? If so, what are you buying? If not, why? We make an effort to buy organic, but are more vigilant about some things than others. We always buy organic milk and to buy the rest of our dairy (cream, yogurt, butter, etc.) organic as well. We buy mostly organic vegetables. I believe Mark buys grass-fed, free range meat and poultry, but I'm not sure if it's actually certifed organic or not. The only things that I don't really make an effort to go organic on are things like cereals, rice, pasta, etc.
Q4 - Television: Which TV shows from the past would you like to see back on television and why?I mostly just want shows that are on hiatus, like The Wire, The Shield, and Entourage, to be back on with new espisodes. A few months ago, I would have lobbied for a return of Tony Bourdain's show on The Food Network, but now he has No Reservation on The Travel Network, which is even better. The other thing I want is for shows that used to be good but now suck to be good again (the best example for this would be The West Wing). But really I don't have time to watch that much TV, so it's just as well than none of these things happen.
